A layout, and some Dusty Attic sneaks

Hi there :)
Finally, I have something I can share with you. Fisrtly I want to show you a layout I did for this fantastic challenge site I have just found, called ANOTHER FREAKING SCRAPPY CHALLENGE,( thanks for the tip Anne) we were asked to scrap a 'generation' layout....The papers were given to me by my LSS, the Imagination Factory, in Ballarat, for this one, Ive used some of the newest Anna Griffin papers, called 'Camilla', and arent they just beautiful. I scrapped a gorgeous photo of my Nan and Grandad, taken about 15 years ago (they both, sadly, passed way about 12 years ago now)  I was so very close to both of them.... and as the title of my layout says 'Remembered always'
 
 
As usual, theres lots of fussy cutting, dies, and handmade flowers here :)

I have been having great fun, playing with some of my Dusty attic chipboard, gettting ready for my DT term, which starts in January. Obviously, I cant show you the whole layout, but I can show you a few sneak peaks of a couple of layouts Ive been working on
 

 
Ok, thats if for today, Im sure everyone is a flat out as I am at this time of the year..  Im off tonight to the annual 'school concert' that we all must attend  lol...  My little 7 year old is playing a farmer (surprise huh). Then another Christmas party tomorrow night, and again on Friday night... arrgghh !!
 
Have a wonderful week my friends xx

  14. Karen I love this so much, the banner and the fussy cutting look fabulous. I particularly love the vine and leaves, they look like a soft leather, are they die cuts?
    I love the sneak peeks, especially the one with a very favourite paper line of mine, Authentique, I can't wait to see the whole page.
